Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for week commencing 9 December, 2014

Greetings all,

On Tuesday 9, Meta House and the Cambodian Center for Human Rights (CCHR), present the opening of a photo exhibition titled Where is my justice?, a call for the Royal Government of Cambodia to end impunity. “The exhibition will share the experiences and challenges faced by some victims of impunity in Cambodia. While the victims of impunity vary, and include journalists, land rights victims, protestors, union strikers and LGTB people amongst others, each have failed to receive justice for the crimes committed against them.” From 6 pm.
